Johnson City, Tennessee – An innocent cat suffered a horrific death in Johnson City, Tennessee. On Sunday, April 18, the orange and white cat was discovered in the parking lot of a funeral home – the cat’s back legs were bound in duct tape and a bloodied screwdriver was found nearby.

Please sign the petition today! The monster who committed this horrific act of cruelty must be located, arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

The Washington County Animal Shelter posted grim images of the slain cat on Sunday, April 18. The animal welfare agency provided details of the despicable act:

The Johnson City Police Department and the WCJC Animal Control Department are investigating the torture and death of a cat found today in a local funeral home parking lot. The cat’s rear legs were bound by duct tape, it had obvious head trauma and a bloody screw driver was found near the body.

Details: The deceased cat was discovered outside of Appalachian Funeral Home on East Watauga Avenue. The cat has “obvious” trauma to the head.

What kind of monster could commit this crime?! Whoever is responsible MUST be found, arrested and held fully accountable for this despicable act of cruelty. The purpose of this petition is to raise awareness of this incident to help find the responsible individual(s), and to have signatures on hand for the prosecutor when an arrest is made.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Johnson City Police Department at 423-434-6160 or the Washington County Animal Shelter at 423-926-8769.

Animal Victory is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to the identification, arrest, and conviction of the person(s) responsible.
